Akagi Chapters 249 & 250

To make up for a week of no Akagi, here's a double release this week! In these chapters, the Oni begin their counterattack on Washizu's group!

Thanks to Tambur for the typesetting and to Crump for the cleans. I will be streaming the finale of Mukoubuchi PS2 this sunday at 2:00 PM PST, and we will be having a Mahjong Night this saturday at 3:00 PM PST.

Chapter 249
Chapter 250

"I'll make that Washizu Iwao regret ever being sent here!!"


Clearly, Hell is more technologically advanced than the time period Washizu is from, since they have Automatic Vacuum Cleaners called Roomba. Those were produced in 2002, a good 37 years after this series takes place. Either this is actually Hell and not a dream, or Washizu has such incredible senses that he can see technological advances of decades in the future. I didn't use the word "roomba" because I don't believe they're that well known outside of Japan; I'd certainly never heard of one before.

It is also revealed in this chapter why Washizu appears his age but has physical attributes from when he was much younger; it's a system to make damned souls' torture last longer. Washizu thinks that this will help him rebel more easily, but surely a system as old as eternity like Hell's must have contingency for rebellions like this. Whatever the case, there is about to be a showdown of supernatural proportions.

  2. I think Roombas are pretty well known, at least in California and Washington where I've lived. Still, it's pretty obvious what they are just looking at them if you know them, so I wouldn't worry.

  3. LOL at the roombas. Also Washizu has become a revolutionary leader, just like Guevara over at Kurosawa's side.

    1. You're confused now? Just wait a few more chapters in. Spoilers: Washizu Godzilla trashing a town and airplanes.
